I love macro photography. There’s just something so beautiful about it to me,
I love how it can make every day items seem so….cool. When I was a kid,
I had subscriptions to a bunch of kid magazines- one was a science focused one,
and my favorite part in each edition, was a section where they would show super macro photographs,
and you had to try to guess what they were- and then they’d show pullback images in the answer key.
So this month’s Blog Carousel theme is right up my alley!
I spent a few minutes wandering around my home, taking some macro images of things in my living room and kitchen.
Later, I showed them to my kids and they had a blast trying to guess what they were.
Some were pretty easy, others less so. Let’s see how you do! (answers/pull-backs will be at the bottom!)
Now, while I do own a fancy schmancy macro lens for my Dslr, about 1/2 of these were actually shot with my iphone,
and a super duper cool little clip on macro lens, made by olioclip.
FUN gadget, and works awesome! (also comes with a wide angle and fisheye)
AND THE ANSWERS!
What’s a Blog Carousel? It’s a monthly event that some fellow photographers participate in, to get us doing something for ourselves and to push us in a different direction. Stretch our creative minds a bit. It’s only for fun and personal exploration, that’s it! Each month we have a theme, and we will photograph or find images that we feel represents the theme! At the end of my post you’ll find a link to the next photographer in this carousel. Please be sure to check out her post and leave a little love! Also if you want to play along, I’d love to see! Post your own versions on your blogs and with a little info on what you’re doing and then you can come back and leave your link in the comment section below, so I can be sure to check it out too!
